“Don’t Miss These Incredible Wines!” RP

You’ve heard me singing the praises of Julien Brechet and his Domaine des Bosquets for months. Today, I thought I’d let you hear from those professional critics who make their living tasting and reporting on thousands of wines per year…

“Looking at the classic cuvee, this Gigondas is a wine that readers should buy by the case.”

                ~ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Readers wanting to get a hold of the best of the vintage need to latch onto these wines from Domaine des Bosquets. This estate has been brought up to the pinnacle of Gigondas, and the Southern Rhône, by the talent and drive of the Brechet family, namely the young Julien Brechet, and consultant Philippe Cambie.”

“Don’t miss these incredible wines!”

                ~ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Julien Brechet has quickly climbed to the top tier of not just the Gigondas quality ladder but that of the whole Rhône Valley, as these wines from 2018 and 2017 will readily attest.”

                ~ Antonio Galloni’s Vinous

“Brechet’s ability to blend depth and finesse consistently impresses, and the wines’ polished tannins make them deceptively approachable.”

                ~ Antonio Galloni’s Vinous

“Leading off the reds from this terrific estate, the 2017 Gigondas checks in as an unusual blend of 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, and the rest Cinsault that was brought up in a mix of vessels (the Grenache is in demi-muids, the Syrah in barrel) for 18 months. Its deep purple-tinged color is followed by a great bouquet of kirsch and black raspberry fruits intermixed with lots of spicy, peppery, and garrigue. It’s soft, sexy, and rounded on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness. Drink it over the coming decade or more.”

I have just shy of five cases of their awesome 2017, a vintage and a wine you lovers of thrilling Rhone wines really should have on your dinner tables. I’m specially pricing it, too. To keep it under $30. What more could you ask for?
